Apex Legends player shares perfect way to buff the terrible Mozambique

While many players have been quick to decide on their favorite Apex Legends weapons since the game’s release, it’s become quite clear that one weapon has drawn the ire of the entire community.

With so many weapons to choose from in Apex Legends, it’s no surprise that some are better than others. It is a surprise, however, to find that the Mozambique is by far the worst gun in the entire game.

On paper, the Moazmbique should be a great weapon, given that it’s a shotgun in pistol form. In actuality, though, the minuscule damage it doles out leads to an underwhelming experience that usually ends in death.

Knowing the weapon needs some major help, Reddit user ‘Rayledare’ came up with a perfect way to buff the weapon and possibly bring it in line with other weapons in the game.

The change, which is incredibly simple, gives the Mozambique a Hop-Up slot that allows for the underpowered weapon to be dual-wielded.

Dual-wielding the Mozambique would allow the weapon to have much more killpower without even needing to buff the base stats of the weapon itself.

The fact that this change would require a Hop-Up would also prevent it from being too strong, as players would need to find the Hop-Up first and couldn’t simply dual-wield right out the gate.

With the first new weapon dropping on February 20, Respawn is no doubt aware that certain weapons might need buffing (or nerfing) and it will certainly need changes in order to keep the weaker weapons from diluting the loot pool.

Respawn have already let players know that they’re listening to feedback and will be issuing regular updates to the game, meaning it might not be long before we see some weapon balance changes.

Whatever changes come when the inevitable balance patch comes, we desperately hope Respawn shows Mozambiques some serious love.

Apex Legends is adding a no-guns LTM in Season 7: Olympus Preview

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
